Hello, Ribbon Lovers! I have been impatiently waiting to share today’s fun card with you. I’ve made a dimensional autumn apples card featuring Really Reasonable Ribbon and Bo Bunny Apple Cider Cardstock. The thing that makes this card special is that I made the bushel basket of apples round! Yes, I did! Take a peek:
It’s not as hard to do as you might think. I began by creating a 5×7 side fold card. I scored the card front at 2 1/2″ and then folded it in, toward the card center. Glue down the top and bottom edge to form a pocket.
A layer of Apple Cider green swirl paper was glued down to the card front. I then fussy cut the basket, apples and leaves, added gold brads to the bushel basket staves and layered the apples and leaves on with dimensional foam. A double layer of foam dots was added to the center of the back of the fussy cut basket, then I wadded up some paper towels and stuck them to the foam tabs. I curved the basket by pushing the cut edges toward the center. The edges were glued, and I held them down until the glue set. Voila! Curved basket! How fun is that?
Then I just added my gorgeous Tangerine Satin Swirls Ribbon to the inside panel of the card, as well as above the bushel of apples. Here’s the inside of the card.
The tag was topped with apple green satin swiss dots ribbon and more of the tangerine swirl ribbon. I found this cute little acorn in my stash of fall embellies and secured it to the tag using gold thread.
Because the card is so dimensional, I had to put it in a box instead of an envelope. So, I made one from the matching paper in the collection.
Thanks for stopping by!
